  3. 3. DIGITAL WORKPLACE STRATEGY… Great, we know who you are Richard, but what do you do on a daily basis? - Intranets? - Extranets? - Departmental Portals? - Project Sites & Team Sites? - Enterprise Social Networks? - Document Management? - Records Management? - Process Improvement? - Centers Of Excellence & Technology Adoption? - And much more….
  4. 4. @RHarbridge #SPSNH JEFF FRIED My twitter is @JeffFried, I love search, & I am proud to work at BA Insight. CTO & MVP | SPEAKER & AUTHOR | SUPER SMART
  5. 5. WHAT I DO… Great, we know who you are Jeff, but what do you do on a daily basis?
  6. 6. Let’s get started…
  7. 7. FOUNDATIONS MATTER… We have all seen the results of Intranets or technology solutions that didn’t have a strong foundation failing to stand the test of time.
  8. 8. FOUNDATIONS MATTER… Let’s discuss the right way to build an effective SharePoint Intranet from the ground up so that we can all be more successful.
  9. 9. 1. Aligning With Business Needs WHAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT TODAY… 2. Setting An Effective Technology Strategy 3. Getting Key Intranet Elements Right 4. Ensure Ongoing Intranet Success
  10. 10. • Look first at the neighborhood: what is the business purpose, the overall context and constraints for your Intranet. Step 1. Where will you build this? What kind of property is it? What’s the right ‘fit’ for your needs? Where should it be and why are you buying it? BEFORE YOU BUILD YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHERE & WHY…
  11. 11. The main purpose often is to improve collaboration or improve collaborative outcomes. COLLABORATION IS AN ATTITUDE…
  12. 12. Intranets Do Multiple Things • Every Intranet does multiple things, and too often there is a disconnect between the intranet design goals and what users want. Every Intranet does multiple things, and too often there is a disconnect between the intranet design goals and what users want. WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR INTRANET?
  13. 13. You can better define what your Intranet needs to do via tried and tested approaches like workshops, personae, interviews, surveys and more. MAPPING YOUR GOALS…
  14. 14. • Think more broadly about the goals for your intranet. INTRANETS AREN’T ALONE… You often need to think more broadly about the Intranet and it’s fit and purpose in your digital workplace.
  15. 15. What if we look at our own organizations technology radar? Inspired by StepTwo’s Digital Workplace Radar Landed (Now to 6 Months) Circling (6-24 Months+) In Flight (Future) WHAT DOES YOUR TECHNOLOGY RADAR LOOK LIKE?
  16. 16. AD Integration / SSO Modern Intranet Social Integration (Yammer) Extranet OneDrive For Business Integration With Document Management System Team Site Deployment Every organization’s journey is a little different, but often follow a similar path to getting more out of Intranets. What do you need to plan for? Trust The Cloud WHAT DOES YOUR TECHNOLOGY RADAR LOOK LIKE? Chat Bot(s) Internal Video Portal Mandatory Popular Situational Strategic FewChat Based Workspaces Integration Of XYZ Systems & Processes Enterprise Search AI Assisted Recommendations Digital Workplace Analytics Integrated Meeting Workspaces
  17. 17. While our business objectives and needs might be complex or unending we need to start somewhere with simple achievable direction. KEEP IT SIMPLE… Align Support Publish Iterate Relate Evaluate - to your business driver(s) - based on value - clearly and often - in small projects - to your infrastructure - and adapt A S P I R E
  18. 18. Collaboration is not a technology, it’s an attitude. Culture needs to also have a plan for improving alongside the technology and Intranet. COLLABORATION IS AN ATTITUDE…
  19. 19. 1. Aligning With Business Needs WHAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT TODAY… 2. Setting An Effective Technology Strategy 3. Getting Key Intranet Elements Right 4. Ensure Ongoing Intranet Success
  20. 20. 1. Aligning With Business Needs WHAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT TODAY… 2. Setting An Effective Technology Strategy 3. Getting Key Intranet Elements Right 4. Ensure Ongoing Intranet Success
  21. 21. MAKING CHOICES AND BUILDING A PLAN… Just like when building a house we need to define our plan for the Intranet. We need to ensure the technology foundation of our Intranet is well planned.
  22. 22. Technology is rarely planned in isolation, but this is especially true for SharePoint. Your Intranet platform is meant to be used for far more than just the Intranet. Integration Planning Business Process Analysis & Improvement Planning Education, Training & Adoption Planning Enteprise Social Integration Planning Security Planning Site Provisioning & Review Process Planning Search Planning Information Architecture Planning Project & Task Planning Team & Group Collaboration Planning Intranet Planning & Design Technology Strategy SharePoint Online Getting the most out of SharePoint Online requires successfully tackling key planning activities from the bottom up. YammerOneDrive For Business Skype For BusinessOffice Delve THERE IS A LOT OF PLANNING INVOLVED…
  23. 23. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  24. 24. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  25. 25. WHY? • Best practices SHAREPOINT PROVIDES A GREAT TECHNOLOGY FOUNDATION… The evidence is all around us from awards to enterprise usage. 70% of corporate intranets are developed on the SharePoint platform.
  26. 26. It’s a platform, an integrated suite, modern, mobile enabled, business centric, and maximizes the impact of your Intranet investments. WHY INTRANETS ON SHAREPOINT?
  27. 27. It’s a platform, an integrated suite, modern, mobile enabled, business centric, and maximizes the impact of your Intranet investments. WHY INTRANETS ON SHAREPOINT? • Bundled • Broad Suite • Pre-Integrated • Modern • Rapid Innovation • Platform
  28. 28. When it provides so much benefit it doesn’t come without some cost. WHY INTRANETS ON SHAREPOINT?
  29. 29. There are real challenges that come with building an Intranet on SharePoint that you should understand before you start. WHY INTRANETS ON SHAREPOINT? • Bundled • Broad Suite • Pre-Integrated • Modern • Rapid Innovation • Platform  Bloated  Confusing Collection  MSFT-centric  Under Construction  Moving Target  You fill in the gaps
  30. 30. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  31. 31. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  32. 32. So Intranets can be built faster, iteratively, and deliver more value… How do we achieve that ourselves? HOW CAN WE KEEP UP AND MOVE FASTER?
  33. 33. SharePoint makes iterative easier. Build Intranets in an iterative way to deliver value faster. Agility is critical when the platform is changing. TIME TO VALUE & NAVIGATING CHANGE…
  34. 34. We deliver more value in far less time today. It’s not unreasonable to expect a new modern Intranet in weeks or months instead of years. HOW LONG SHOULD IT TAKE?
  35. 35. Primary drive is cost and speed or time to value. In professional service costs alone it is typically 40% cheaper, not including hardware, maintenance and more. SHOULD IT BE ON SERVER OR ONLINE?
  36. 36. THE CLOUD ENABLES US TO KEEP PACE WITH INDUSTRY TRENDS… Continually improving experiences, continuous rollout of new capabilities, continued integration with more technologies, and much more…
  37. 37. GETTING CLOSER TO THE CLOUD WILL HELP… It is more challenging to meet modern expectations on legacy technology.
  38. 38. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  39. 39. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  40. 40. Options Configure Tailor Extend Custom • “Out-of-the-box” SharePoint / O365 • Add-on “Ready to Go Intranet” • Full Custom Once you determine the platform and where to run it you still need to consider build or buy options. OPTIONS…
  41. 41. WHAT ABOUT “READY TO GO” INTRANETS? Lists 26 products There has been an explosion of new offerings at the same time that Microsoft is extending its OOB Intranet capabilities.
  42. 42. All options require work to integrate, configure, and roll out BUILD VS BUY CONSIDERATIONS… OOTB (++) Buy (IIAB) Build Development effort Keeps up with Microsoft Innovations Feature Set Fit Exactly to requirements Customized to existing business processes Effort/Cost to configure Testing and Compliance Licensing cost Regular Updates/Upgrades Impact on internal resources/other projects

  44. 44. SharePoint As A Platform Online & On-Premises Build & Buy Integration An effective Intranet technology strategy has a few key topic areas.
  45. 45. WHAT SYSTEMS DO YOU NEED TO INTEGRATE? Another very critical area of technology planning is determining what you want to integrate, need to integrate, and how you will integrate.
  46. 46. of knowledge workers regularly access 4 or more systems to get the information they need to do their jobs 61% regularly access 11 or more systems of a typical knowledge worker’s day is spent looking for and consolidation information spread across a variety of systems 36% 15% Aim to get critical mass – integrate the core systems that most people depend on into your Intranet, and then it will be and effective hub for getting work done. WE LIVE IN SILOS…
  47. 47. WHAT DOES INTEGRATION LOOK LIKE? Make sure you understand where you need which scenarios Common Scenarios • Display information from external systems in UI, such as web parts, application pages, etc. • Client/Matter dashboards • Allow users to interact with external data in SharePoint list format • Crawl back-end data sources so they show up in search results • Import external data into user profiles • Syncing data from the source system into SharePoint Make sure you understand where you need which scenarios.
  48. 48. • Buy vs. build for connectors? boils down to “buy” What connectors should you include? 49 • Aderant • Amazon S3 • Alfresco • Box • Confluence • CuadraSTAR • Elite / 3E • EMC Documentum • EMC eRoom • Google Drive • HP Consolidated Archive (EAS, aka Zantaz) • HPE Records Manager/HP TRIM • IBM Connections • IBM Content Manager • IBM DB2 • IBM FileNet P8 • IBM Lotus Notes • IBM WebSphere • iManage Work • Jive • LegalKEY • LexisNexis Interaction • Lotus Notes Databases • Microsoft Dynamics CRM • Microsoft Exchange • Microsoft Exchange Public Folders • Microsoft SQL Server • MySQL • NetDocuments • Neudesic The Firm Directory • Objective • OneDrive • OpenText LiveLink/RM • OpenText eDOCS DM • Oracle Database • Oracle WebCenter • Oracle WebCenter Content (UCM/Stellent) • PLC/Practical Law • ProLaw • Salesforce.com • SAP ERP • ServiceNow • SharePoint Online • SharePoint 2016 • SharePoint 2013 • SharePoint 2010 • SharePoint 2007 • Sitecore • Any SQL-based CRM system • Veeva Vault • Veritas Enterprise Vault (Symantec eVault) • WestKM • Xerox DocuShare • Yammer WHAT CONNECTORS SHOULD YOU INCLUDE? Buy versus build for connectors often boils down to buy and then build on it.

  52. 52. PLAN FOR IMPLEMENTATION… The information architecture and functional requirements are like our foundation and framing plan. We detail how things will be built and provide more detail.
  53. 53. Design Organization Experience Search There are many Intranet elements we need to consider carefully. Let’s dive into a few together today.
  54. 54. Design Organization Experience Search There are many Intranet elements we need to consider carefully. Let’s dive into a few together today.
  55. 55. The digital hub/center of your digital workplace strategy is your Intranet. It helps people navigate, discover, and bring together what matters. HOW SHOULD IT BE DESIGNED?
  56. 56. The digital hub/center of your digital workplace strategy is your Intranet. It helps people navigate, discover, and bring together what matters. HOW SHOULD IT BE DESIGNED?
  57. 57. HOW SHOULD IT BE DESIGNED? Improved authoring and new controls will continue to build on what is already available such as the hero, news, events, or activity controls.
  58. 58. It’s not just about the homepage which should connect key experiences. Your Intranet design should be about improving how people work today. HOW SHOULD IT BE DESIGNED?
  59. 59. HOW WILL YOU MANAGE ACCESS? Mobility and access outside of the enterprise is a requirement today.
  60. 60. Your Intranet should be responsive by design, but you could also enable better experiences on mobile devices. Extending team or departmental engagement. HOW WILL YOU ENABLE MOBILITY?

  62. 62. Design Organization Experience Search There are many Intranet elements we need to consider carefully. Let’s dive into a few together today.
  63. 63. CONTENT OVER TIME… The modern digital workplace and Intranet has a continually increasing number of digital spaces or ‘sites’ where content is stored and shared.
  64. 64. HOW SHOULD USERS NAVIGATE? While mega menus and other innovations were implemented navigation was always structure based, or managed. With special directory style pages.
  65. 65. Office 365’s SharePoint home is now a more modern site directory experience. New features like activity roll ups, and quick follow/share options are the start. HOW SHOULD USERS NAVIGATE?
  66. 66. While structured and managed navigation is still valid in today’s world it is also important to improve navigation with powerful capabilities like search. HOW SHOULD USERS NAVIGATE?
  67. 67. By centralizing and governing the creation of ‘spaces’ or sites we can improve content organization drastically with things like default metadata and templates. HOW CAN WE BUILD SITES BETTER?

  69. 69. Design Organization Experience Search There are many Intranet elements we need to consider carefully. Let’s dive into a few together today.
  70. 70. When designing news, leadership or even events pages we can take advantage of new and improved authoring experiences. Team news can be complimentary. HOW SHOULD NEWS BE DESIGNED?
  71. 71. HOW SHOULD NEWS BE DESIGNED? Fast and improved news authoring will build on what is already available. Microsoft will provide new client side web parts like hero, news, and events.
  72. 72. HOW SHOULD NEWS BE DESIGNED? Capabilities like bookmarking, notifications, and more help you not only stay up to date, but follow up when a better time is available.
  73. 73. The model of news being personalized based on region is only the beginning. Go beyond this and target and share team, departmental and other news. HOW SHOULD NEWS BE DESIGNED? As team and departmental news increases we want to ensure our digital hub is helping by giving a broader view of that important information.
  74. 74. Targeted embedding of Yammer or your enterprise social platform in key parts of the Intranet, and digital workplace like news and team sites are a good start. HOW SHOULD SOCIAL BE ENABLED?

  97. 97. 1 The funnel of commitment is driving interest / awareness + guiding understanding + sharing and realizing value until they are sold/committed. THE FUNNEL FOR COMMITMENT… 3 Often initially comprised of early adoptions. These users may adopt & use new technology once they are aware of it or have an interest in the technology. ‘Did you know’ tips & pre-launch communication can accelerate this groups adoption. Use this group to share and influence others. Users need help understanding how to change. How can they use the technology? How should they use it? Help, coaching, how to tips, training, contests & challenges help this group of users the most. 2 Users need to understand the value of changing. Sharing stories, benefits, contest winners, & business impact of the technology will be critical.
  98. 98. PLAN AND EXECUTE CAMPAIGNS… Developing a roadmap for adoption where we plan activities before launch, during launch and after launch is important. Plan and execute campaigns!
